Korero Mai - Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th September 2014

Saturday 06 September : Ngati Porou Kaumatua Parekura Kupenga

This week yesterday's leaders and tomorrow's leaders met at Massey University's Albany campus to discuss what has happened in Maori development since the 1984 Hui Taumata what is the path ahead to 2040, the 200th anniversary of the Treaty of Waitangi. There was criticism that some of the most successful programmes coming out of the hui were quickly shelved. In Kia Korero Mai on Saturday, Ngati Porou kaumatua Parekura Kupenga looks back to 1984 and the sort of changes Maori saw at the flax roots, and remembers initiatives that may be due for a revival.

Sunday 07 September: Taurangamoana Kuia Mabel Wharekawa Burt

At Te Pae Roa 2040 academic Aroha Mead from Ngati Awa and Ngati Porou declared that if Maori want te reo to flourish, they need to prioritise good speakers on marae over gender. Mabel Wharekawa Burt from Taurangamoana says kaore. On Sunday in Kia Korero Mai she tells Eru Morgan why she believes it is up to each iwi, hapu, and whanau to decide whether women should speak on their marae.

Korero Mai Ki Ahau a half hour features programme every Saturday and Sunday from noon, which takes an in – depth look at issues affecting te ao Maori. Totally in te reo Maori brought to you by Waatea News in association with Te Mangai Paho.

Ma Waatea ma te reo hei whakamarama
